This limitation of WhatsApp Web not only takes your time, but frequent change can be boring in the long run. Fortunately, there is a way to open and run multiple WhatsApp web accounts. If you're using Chrome, this method is as simple as changing the tabs on your browser.
Here we will explore two methods. While the first uses the Incognito mode of Chrome, the second allows it via a dedicated Chrome extension for session management. Sounds interesting?
Next, let's see how to use two WhatsApp accounts on your PC at the same time.
Method 1: Incognito Method
It's one of the simplest and easiest methods. All you have to do is open Chrome's Incognito mode and open WhatsApp Web from there. Scan the QR code and bam!
However, it has its share of limitations. On the one hand, you lose the session as soon as you close the browser or the tab. To open new WhatsApp web sessions, you must scan the code again.
Although it only takes a few seconds, you tend to lose a lot of time in the long run.
So, would not it be a lot easier if your browser could just remember the login information of your WhatsApp account? Well, it seems like it's not difficult after all. Proceed to the next method.
Pro TipNote: You can also use a different browser, such as Firefox or Opera, to open your secondary WhatsApp Web account.
Method 2: Using a dedicated Chrome extension
Session Box allows you to create separate sessions for each connection. This way you can use two multiple accounts on the same browsers – be it Facebook, WhatsApp or Twitter.
And the story does not stop there. You can also keep these sessions stored in the browser so that the connection is as simple as clicking a dedicated button. In addition, you can also use the same session on another browser by sharing the URL. In addition, you can also create temporary sessions.
Sounds interesting, right? Let's see how this extension works.
Step 1: Once you have downloaded and installed this extension, open WhatsApp Web on your browser and log in with the help of your main account.
Once done, click on the Session Box icon in the status bar. You will see a map "Sessions for the current page". Click the Plus icon on the far right to create a stored session.
2nd step: Now enter the name of your session. Assign a simple name so that it is easy to differentiate the accounts later (otherwise you will have to create several).
In my case, I named it WhatsApp Session Jio. Here, colors are automatically assigned to each session to help you differentiate the tabs later.
To choose a color and an icon of your choice, hover over the top of the prompt box and select a suitable one.
At the same time, if you do not want this session to be synchronized between different systems, tap the Synchronize icon under the name.
The best thing about this extension is that it guides you through the configuration process. Once everything has been selected and entered, click OK to create a new session.
Step 3: Then scan the QR code using your secondary WhatsApp account, and that's about it all. Now you have your two accounts one beside the other. Then change the tabs (Ctrl + Shift + Tab). There you have your time saved.
The best thing about this method is that the system remembers your session. Once you have finished working, you can simply close the tab. And the next time you need to access this account again, click the Session Box icon, and then click the name you added. Simple, see.
In addition to WhatsApp, you can also open and run multiple accounts for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, among others. In addition, you can delete session details from accounts and sites that you no longer need. Click on the three-point menu and select Delete.
Professional advice: You can also create temporary sessions. It does not come with the hassle of naming sessions and tastes. Instead, it opens the login page directly. All you have to do is add your login credentials and that's about it.
However, like many applications and extensions, Session Box is not flawless. There is a bug that sometimes forces pages and websites to regenerate. To resolve this problem, press the shortcut Ctrl + F5.
Premium Account Features
Although most Session Box features are free, there are also some premium features. On the one hand, you can create a bookmark.
Second, you can copy the URL and open it on your secondary system, thus avoiding the hassle of setting up the account and preferences.
There are also two convenient shortcuts for frequent users.
While Ctrl + Shift + X opens a new session, Ctrl + Shift + S opens the Session Area dialog box.
WhatsApp Web is one of the fastest ways to send and receive messages. All you need is a functional Internet connection and a phone with an operational rear camera to get the most out of it. Now, with multiple sessions and accounts, you can continue your work seamlessly, wherever you are.
